A valve is a device that turns the water on and off to each area of your lawn. You will generally have several valves in your sprinkler system, depending on the age of your system and the size of your yard.

Electric valves are what most installers use today. They operate using 24V current from the  controller to the valve. Wires run from each valve to the controller and are generally installed with the main line pipe below ground. When the controller sends current to the zone valve, it magnetically opens the solenoid and allows the valve to open.
